I would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking to regain their balance and mobility. I have a lot more confidence in myself now after working with Adam for over the last 7 months. His periodic evaluations are very helpful in seeing the progress I’ve made. Dee Ware

My Mum of 94 years, has been doing exercises in her home with Adam. She was very weak and loosing muscle mass, especially after loosing my Dad in April. Adam gradually encouraged her to start gently and improve weekly doing her exercises. Even at 94, she is now regaining her strength and it looks like we wont be needing to use the wheel chair that was recently purchased. It's amazing what an half hour, twice a week, can achieve. Thankyou Adam for your knowledge and expertise in helping my Mum walk much more freely.

I worked with Adam whilst working as a Case Manager for an Aged Care Provider. Adam was a delight to work with. He was prompt, efficient and communicated extensively. His reports are detailed and I received regular updates. Clients have reached their personal goals and were thrilled with the way Adam approaches their sessions.

Adam is a diligent and gentle exercise physiologist who will listen to your needs and work with any health constraints you may have. I particularly appreciated how he liaised with my cardiologist to help me figure out what I could and couldn’t do.

Adam’s exercises before a major illness contributed to saving my life. He is now able to help me with my rehabilitation and his willingness to conduct home visits is an extra bonus to us. We have nothing but praise for Adam. Thank you for your care Adam, John & Ann Crosby.

I cannot speak highly enough of Adam Rimland and his work as an exercise physiologist working across all ages and all medical conditions. My husband Brian suffered from Parkinsons disease which eventually affected his mobility – in 2019/20 we had Adam visiting our house twice a week where he focused on firstly analysing Brian‘s needs in developing an ever-changing program that challenged Brian but enabled him to keep Mobile. This was a godsend and so successful -he was 80 years old. We continued this when Brian was admitted to a nursing home . In recent times I engaged Adam to help me with a severe knee problem I have endured for 10 years. In that time three orthopaedic specialists have confirmed severe osteoarthritis with bone on bone and booked me in for surgery for a knee replacement all of which I cancelled. After working with Adam for six months and doing very specifically designed exercises I am now walking on the sand for 5 days a week for 6K with virtually no pain . On my recent visit to the orthopaedic specialist last week he confirmed that he does not want to do the knee replacement if I can walk that distance pain-free. This is a miracle for me resulting from Adam’s attention to detail and his depth of knowledge and experience in Exercise Physiology tailored to the individuals need. I am 79 years old .

It is with much pleasure that I wholeheartedly recommend Adam. A severe water skiing accident 50 yrs. ago left me with multiple spinal, muscular & balance issues which have worsened with age. Adam has slowly built up an exercise program which for the 1st. time, I have not only been able to follow & cope with, but which is actually improving my mobility & range of movement. I love the way he notices every aspect of my technique & offers advise for subtle changes that make all the difference. He is wonderful at explaining how & why these are helping me, & he is extending the program at a speed that is not overwhelming, but enough for me to feel continued positive changes in my body. Thank you Adam.

FAQ for Community-Based Independent Living Seniors

As seniors in independent living communities, you have a unique set of needs and goals. Exercise physiology plays a pivotal role in addressing these and enhancing your overall quality of life. Here are some common questions we receive from seniors living independently within the community:

What specific benefits does in-home exercise physiology offer for seniors in independent living communities?

In-home exercise physiology is tailored to boost mobility, enhance physical health, and foster emotional well-being. For community-based independent living seniors, this means more active participation in community events, improved day-to-day functionality, and reduced risks of falls or health-related issues.

How is the exercise program adjusted to fit my individual needs and living space?

Each exercise program is personalised based on your health needs, goals, and the space available. We consider the unique characteristics of independent living homes and retirement villages to ensure you get the most out of each session.

I've been physically inactive for a while. Is it too late to start benefiting from exercise physiology?

It's never too late! Regardless of your current activity level, our programs are designed to meet you where you are and help you progress safely and effectively

Can in-home exercise physiology help with managing chronic conditions that many seniors face?

Absolutely. Exercise physiology can be a key component in managing and even mitigating the effects of many chronic conditions like arthritis, diabetes, or heart-related issues. By working closely with our trained professionals, you can develop strategies to address these challenges head-on.

How often should I engage in exercise sessions to see tangible benefits in my independent living setting?

The frequency can vary based on individual needs and goals. However, consistency is key. After an initial assessment, we'll recommend a schedule that's both effective and manageable for you.

Do I need any special equipment at home?

We provide all the necessary equipment for your sessions. Our exercise physiologist tailors programs using everyday household items, your own equipment, or can suggest affordable equipment options if required.

How do I book an appointment?

You can book an appointment by giving us a call or shooting us an email

Are there any community-based group sessions available, or is it only one-on-one?

While our primary focus is on individualized in-home sessions, we also recognise the value of group interactions, especially in community settings. Depending on interest and availability, group sessions can be organized to foster both physical health and social engagement.

What qualifications do your exercise physiologists hold?

Our exercise physiologists are accredited with Exercise & Sports Science Australia, ensuring they have the highest standard of education and training in the field.
